Airline reviews

Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Ordered a vegan meal for flight companion pre-flight; we *both* received a vegan meal (it seems like people with incompatible diets cannot book their flights together). Flight seemed to have run out meals since a random third person in my row requested an extra meal and was told they were out. Flight etiquette of other passengers would have been nice; for example, it was also fairly unsafe for a father and child to keep walking up and down the aisles, let alone the bumping into people they kept doing."

Pros: "On time. Like the 787."
Cons: "The vegetarian evening meal."

Pros: "The crew on Air NZ is consistently wonderful. The entertainment and sets for domestic flights are good, but not great. For international flights, their seats and entertainment are excellent."

Pros: "The crew were very welcoming and made you feel special. The food was great! The burger was tremendous! The films very up to date."

Pros: "Comfortable"

Pros: "Crew complete meals and drinks efficiently so passengers can settle quickly for night flight"

Cons: "Passengers with more than one bag as hand luggage"

Pros: "The crew were always smiling and helpful. We were allocated the SkyCouch seat which was pretty nice"

Pros: "Can't say enough about how good the experience was. It felt like business class, except the seat doesn't transform into a flat bad. Service, meals, amenities, washrooms, etc. were amazing. Also, the flight times AKL-YVR and YVR-AKL are so civilized! You leave each city around dinner time, you dine, you watch a movie, sleep as much as you want, have breakfast, and then it's time to land! Way better than other options that leave at odd times."
Cons: "I can't think of anything to improve. NZ really rocked the flight and the Premium Economy product."

Pros: "Friendly crew, timely response, food was nice"

Pros: "I was very impressed by the entire experience. Boarding and disembarking at front and at rear of plane, good spacing between seats, cookies, entertainment options... and lovely flight crew. Thank you Air NZ!"
Cons: "Nothing I can think of. Very happy with the flight."

Cons: "Air New Zealand needs to manage double door boarding a little differently - a ticket checker needs to be at the split point - to streams of passengers trying to find their seat in opposite directions just doesn't work."

Pros: "We flew Air Canada’s Economy Plus from Vancouver to Sydney and Air New Zealand’s Economy Plus from Auckland back to Vancouver. NZ’s Economy Plus product is far and above AC’s. Everything from the welcome, to the meal, to the level of service is great. I really felt that NZ treated the Econ Plus cabin as distinct from Economy (including having 2 dedicated washrooms), whereas on AC it felt like we were merely Economy with better seats. I compare NZ and AC because we were so genuinely impressed with what we purchased. We would definitely book NZ Econ Plus again, and the January seat sale is a great time to do so!"
Cons: "I can’t think of anything I didn’t like. NZ gets this product right."

Pros: "I was upgraded to business class"

Pros: "Everything, one of my favourite airlines"

Pros: "Friendly quality staff, good aircraft."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Seats comfortable. Entertainment was extensive. Food was good!"

Cons: "Needs to improve in all sections"

Cons: "Aircraft was very old"

Pros: "Excellent service"

Pros: "The crew was awesome, seating is never comfortable for a long flight."

Pros: "Everything was nice.."
Cons: "None..."

Pros: "On time, chose the raw meal which was excellent."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Good flight and on time."

Pros: "I had a fast and easy check-in at Denpasar airport. In flight service by cabin crew was very good, as I normally get in the business class at Emirates. Flight left Denpasar on time and arrived in Auckland some 30 mins early, which was nice. Enjoyed a late dinner - the mie goreng ayam was particularly tasty!"
Cons: "In the past on overnight flights Emirates I have received a pyjama set in the Business Class, which made it very comfortable to sleep. But this time this was not given, so I had to sleep in my day-wear, which was a bit uncomformtable."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Veg food needs to be improved in ROME-DUBAI Sector."

Pros: "Traveling alone with a 1 year old the crew was fantastic. They gave me better seats with empty seats next to me. Helped entertain little one regularly on their own accord. Very friendly and helpful. Made a long exhausting more than trip doable"
Cons: "I didn’t like the airport in Dubai. Cleaners locked all the disabled toilets. I walked to 3 of them. Very difficult to use normal toilet and having to leave your baby & carry on outside when traveling alone!"

Pros: "Lots of selection in movies"
Cons: "There was a glitch on the entertainment system and the staff tried to reset with no luck. Our row and the back row was affected and we could not watch anything on the screen for a good 2 hrs of the flight. Boarding was rather disoriented. The ground crew did not give clear instructions to control the crowd."

Pros: "Information from the captain"
Cons: "Serving alcohol to someone who had consumed a lot, difficult for the crew to know though."

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "The flight was incredibly comfortable, and Emirates reputation is well warranted. Service was impeccable and food was great. Seats were great, especially in business."
Cons: "Overall business class was great, however I didn’t like the placement of the remote at my left shoulder. I hit rabdom buttons a few times and it changed the channels and I would have to re-search for the movie I was watching. Everything else was absolutely perfect."

Pros: "I liked helpfulness of staff that took care of my 11months old son"

Pros: "Air vents over seat, excellent entertainment and good food, comfortable seat. this route doesn’t seem to be too full for the long Hall flight"

Pros: "Crew were friendly Entertainment was good"
Cons: "My meal was forgotten and when I asked for it I received dried red cabbage and a dried up tomato and a grated carrot and something I didn't know what it was. The bread was not gluten free on this meal so I couldn't eat it. Unlike the first leg of my journey this meal didn't have my name or seat number on. I feel like it was put together once I asked where my meal was. Snacks offered but not gluten free so was very hungry from previous flight."

Pros: "Ease of checkin"
Cons: "Delayed take off Delayed baggage retrieval’s"

Pros: "This was operated by Qantas. Nice movie/music setup. Crew friendly"

Cons: "By the time the food cart reaches rear zones , there are not much left to choose from. It should be better managed so all passengers have a chance to pick the food of their choice."

Cons: "Boarding was disorganized. Otherwise everything was good"

Cons: "We requested wheelchair assistance for my grandmother (3 days before the flight), but at the departing airport, the person with the wheelchair left early and we had to walk her on to the plane. When we arrived at Hong Kong, there was no wheelchair on the bridge, and after disembarking and being told to wait, it took 30 minutes for them to bring one. The ground staff kept trying to convince us to just walk which seemed very unprofessional."

Pros: "I loved the entire experience. This flight was my second trip with Cathay Pacific and I couldn’t be more satisfied. Seats were clean and comfortable. They had decent leg room and great range of motion. The entertainment center was simple but sleek. I loved the extensive movie library. Service was great."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed but the crew did keep us updated and was systematic in boarding"

Pros: "Cathay Pacific continues to delivery a stellar experience in first class even on shorter legs such as the soon to be discontinued New York to Vancouver flight (888/865). They even brought back Krug, which they opened on the ground no less in New York, and offer access to AA Flagship Dining at JFK which itself offers flagship dining."

Cons: "seat space was tight. it was hard to get comfortable"

Pros: "Been flying CX for years and for some reasons this time all the staff members were excellent. From ground to air crew everyone was well informed, nice and helpful. Another surprise was the vegan meal I ordered. Airplane food in general is disgusting, but this time the vegan meal was delicious."
Cons: "Flying out from JFK is a nightmare, we had to wait for 40 mins on the runway. Not sure if airlines can actually improve that?"

Pros: "The crew was fantastic."
Cons: "Entertainment is out of date and difficult to use."

Cons: "I booked a window seat, got a middle seat."

Pros: "Will if you didnt know yet it was horrible. because of the reschedulling i miss my flight from paris to venice and all this flight is boon through you but i couldnt contact cheapflights because you dont handle it. So what do you think??"
Cons: "Well at least you could at least know what happened but instead i still got message from you that my flight was still on for 1235 really are you guys that really dumb??"

Cons: "2:40 flight delay - terrible food and very limited choice on the entetainment system - a terrible airline"

Cons: "not too bad"

Pros: "very friendly staff"
Cons: "seats could be more comfortable for long flights, better food choice"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The baggage of all first class passengers was delayed beyond the time of the later flight .. ridiculous .. also flight delayed as is usual tor all flights in and out of Bangkok. The food on the flight is not appealing .. the front of the seat fell down onto the legs.."

Pros: "On time, safe, standard service"

Pros: "Good quality plane with good entertainment options. Staff were good but seemed stretched, perhaps not enough staff?"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Slow and old entertainment system. Bad seats"

Pros: "Some of the staff were very nice. the plane was not full so was able to sleep whole flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 hour. we get on plane. then an announcement that in previous flight plane hit a bird so they needed to dissemble the plane. we got off plane at 11:26 pm. waited there. received a text announcement it would leave now at 2 am. the staff on site did not announce this information till 12:45 am. we waited and then got good news flight was going to take off. not in a logical way the plane took off all our luggage off the plane. and then could not add our luggage back on to the plane because tsa was now closed. so paperwork for getting luggage was poorly committed. not bright people. I hope my luggage arrives like they say a day later."

Cons: "Wasn’t allowed to book seats until checkin"

Cons: "Cabin crew did not offer much service. No coffee, tea or water offered."

Cons: "More choices in food and more leg room or ability to put legs up, had very swollen feet!"

Cons: "Didn’t like the seating arrangement. The check in counter was unwilling to accommodate us, even when we tried to check in four and half hours prior departure. We were unable to seat together for the long flight. On the plane, I noticed 2 family members travel together got aisle seat. I was really disappointed that Cathy Pacific allowed passengers pre-select seat in this method and has no authority or unwilling to accommodate others that flight together. Will not flight Cathy Pacific again."

Pros: "I liked the crew, the food, comfort. Everything made my travel experience great"

Cons: "The seats seemed like they had no padding and it kept stabbing me in the back. Seat belts were so thick and hard i couldn't lean in any direction to get comfortable as it would stab me. My partner and I were also seated separately. Painful flight, disappointed."

Pros: "I traveled economy coming home and was delighted by the amenities that you never see on commercial airlines anymore. On the way to New York I upgraded to premium economy, This was such a nice experience. It was worth the up charge. And two free checked bags? That is unheard of anymore"
Cons: "When I was on the upgraded ticket, I was actually disappointed that we landed early because I was sleeping so well."

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "Very quiet (A350), good crew who helped direct those unused to flying to the correct class. Good seat comfort and food, very good good entertainment. Toilets were cleaned periodically during the flight."

Pros: "Average flight. Nothing special. Pleasant flight crew."
Cons: "Baggage was delayed."

Pros: "No drinks served before the meal. No water brought round during the night. Cabin staff efficient if a bit brisk. Food not quite OK - no imagination. Films really good."

Pros: "Easy boarding, good entertainment. Great crew."
Cons: "Long flight to easy to complain about something. But really no problems here"

Cons: "the wifi is awful"

Pros: "Flying portion was fine."
Cons: "Flight delayed for mechanical issues.... then upon landing trapped in cabin filled with exhaust then again trapped in a locked hallway."

Pros: "That the flight attendant was really helpful"
Cons: "If the flight would have been on time"

Pros: "The pilot’s landing was phenomenal."

Cons: "Communicating rules such as not going through the business class to loop around to the other aisle of the coach class is definitely acceptable however the tone in communicating this should never sound condescending and patronizing, esp over the PA. Flight staff shld refine her communication skills."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Getting off. Entertainment system."
Cons: "The food. Working toilets. 10 abreast seating is too tight on 777. Avoid."

Pros: "Pilot did great job, superb smooth landing."
Cons: "The two male flight attendants could have been a bit more friendly."

Cons: "Missed the flight due to poor staff and a delayed landing from my crossover. Given how childish the ground staff were being, I can only assume the flight staff wouldn't be much better."

Pros: "Wide choice of films on the flight, boarding was hassle free."
Cons: "Crew could have been much politer when asking about the food wishes of others. Seemed to have no idea how to walk through the aisles, hitting my head and shoulders more than once while walking through."

Cons: "Seats and screens, usb charging points"

Pros: "comfortable plane."
Cons: "Kay&k was awful. Never use them again."

Pros: "Honestly, nothing!!"
Cons: "Everything. This airline has disappointed me for the last time."

Pros: "It was average."

Cons: "4 hour delay is unacceptable"

Cons: "Seats are too close"

Pros: "Crew was nice and made sure we were all comfortable before taken off :)"
Cons: "I was thirsty on the way back but we were not offered anything to drink so I waited till we landed to buy a drink, other then that was very enjoyable. Plan on using America airlines again"

Cons: "Old aircraft ...what’s with the non-assignment of seats until the last minute unless you pay extra !"

Pros: "The seat was cormfortable and the entertainment was dope!"
Cons: "Communication. The pilot did not say when he was landing and considering it was a rough landing it would have been helpful to say. He said we shall be landing like 40minutes before Then quiet"

Pros: "Good entertainment, seats were ok."
Cons: "I paid for a seat with extra leg room and then was told at the gate that there were none of those seats left, despite the fact that I booked and paid for that seat 3 weeks ago!"

Pros: "The crew were nice, glad I paid for the extra legroom."
Cons: "The food was only so-so, but it’s only a short flight so you can’t expect too much."

Pros: "It left on time and arrived on time"
Cons: "Service, comfort and food as I would rate these below 0 if there was that option."

Pros: "Entertainment available excellent"
Cons: "Seating space seems to narrow"

Pros: "liked the crew, but didn't know that we would have to check our bags, since the plane was small & had no overhead. Also, I wish I would have been told ahead of time, that I would have to check my bag again going home, even though the plane did have overhead space. Other than that, I love AA!"
Cons: "I didn't get very good instructions about picking up my carry on bag plane side. I was told to go to the baggage claim instead by a staff member when I came out of the plane, but this was wrong, so I ended up waiting a very long time for them to bring me my carry on bag to the baggage claim."

Pros: "didn't get my flight you said booking was guaranteed refund 24 hours but when i call to change or refund you said the airline would not change or refund. you didn't live up to your end. if you refund i would consider tat but for now. i would never use kayak again and will post my experience"
Cons: "you could have change my return when i called 2 hours after or 18 hours after now i have to pay 500 to get home you should live up to your rules and refund my money"

Cons: "When I checked in on line, I was asked to choose my seat. However, there were no seats available that were free of added charge. I had to pay another $50.00 for a seat. I do believe, when I have a confirmed ticket, I should not have to pay an additional charge for a seat."

Pros: "Good seat"
Cons: "Headset didn't work and no replacement"

Cons: "The guy who’s checking me in he’s very kind.he is so nice person."

Cons: "No food on the International flight from Kingston to Miami."

Pros: "Price, entertainment, direct flight"
Cons: "Plane left because pilot was late, little to no legroom for a 6"2 person. Boarding procedure is a joke. Instead of their group system the plane should be boarded from the back. By the time group 8 comes on board there is no room in the overhead bins."

Pros: "Prompt on time service."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The plane was not busy so services took about 5 minutes, everyone had 2 seats minimum and generally quiet. Had it been busy, it would have been different in that seats were not very wide, aisles very small, if the seat in front reclines and you don't, you can't see your screen and not a lot of space in general."
Cons: "If you want to select your seat, be prepared to pay £175 per flight. This is ridiculous! Second meal was a very bare bbq beef pie or sweet potato pie... On their own with nothing else and it arrived 30 minutes before we landed so very rushed. On a 9.5hr flight the 2nd meal needed to be an actual meal and come sooner than it did."

Pros: "Arrived ahead of the scheduled time"
Cons: "Plane was less than half full yet the crew appeared pressured .... one crew member didn’t wait for me to complete my request and she brought me eat phones yet I wanted to ask for water to drink! Seats don’t recline much ...."

Pros: "Flight crew were very apologetic"
Cons: "Missed connecting flight from Miami. Only one flight per day. Had to take a flight to an alternative location, drive for an hour down the coast and take a ferry to my final destination."

Pros: "Outbound, it was on time, plenty of legroom, plenty of good snacks, drinks and food. An enjoyable flight. Score 10.0"
Cons: "Return flight - The flight departed 4 hours late. The seating was so cramped my husband couldn't move his legs at all, never mind try to sleep. The staff members were not smart in appearance, some with long untidy hair, and did not interact with passengers except to hand out food. The food was reasonable. We disembarked feeling like wrecks. Score 2.0"

Pros: "Seats which we selected where great"
Cons: "I would have like the opportunity of moving up to preferred seating. Would be willing to purchase it"

Cons: "They changed my flight schedule that made me have to arrange my travel plan"

Cons: "First flight TUS to DFW was delayed by 3 hours causeing us to mist all the remaining flights. Had to scramble to find other flights DFW to LHR and LHR to DUB. We arrived at our destination 10 hours. No reason for the delay was given. Lousey service on AA."

Cons: "The vegetarian meal is always vegan, I miss the dairy :("

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Someone stole an ipad and that forced us the be delayed for 2 hours"

Pros: "Asked a stewardess to turn the heat up and she did."
Cons: "Freezing cold air conditioning. Every person I could see was wrapped up in their blanket before we had even taken off."

Pros: "My flight was delayed many hours so I wasn’t going to make my connecting flight in NY it to Toronto, There service agent was great and found me a seat on a later flight that was direct. Overall, happy with their service found me the best flight available."
Cons: "I never could figure out why the flight was delayed, there were a couple of other delayed AA flights too. I was supposed to get to Toronto at 2pm for a 5pm presentation, but I didn’t get in until 9. I also felt their website was deceptive or maybe needs updating,When I bought my ticket It stated that I would get 3 bags complimentary since it was Canada that wasn’t the case, I was charged for $60 for both."

Cons: "Food and drinks could be better"

Pros: "Went on time and looked after very well"
Cons: "Going over leg room, a bit tight"

Pros: "It's a direct flight."
Cons: "Everything - the plane was last updated in 1989 (you can still see where the cathode ray screens were bolted to the central overhead bins), the entertainment is laughable, several didn't work - passengers were given choice of putting up with that or getting off flight. A flight to endure, not enjoy"

Cons: "Travel agency did not notify me that I needed to get a Yellow Fever immunization"

Pros: "The crew was kind"
Cons: "Seat space is too cramped"

Pros: "Polite, helpful crew"
Cons: "Nothing, would recommend"

Pros: "Customer service from SFO to YVR. The BNE to YVR customer service wasn’t good when I came, particularly from the Brisbane airport staff, but going back, it was great."
Cons: "Better food, otherwise good"

Cons: "One of my checked baggage was lost."

Pros: "I don’t usually complain, but this was probably my least comfortable flight. Not much that I liked about the flight."
Cons: "Compensation or at least an apology for tv screen and air conditioning not working. The flight was hot and boring."

Cons: "Toilets were dirty and not enough toilet papers"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "2 hour delay due to mechanical issue sitting on the tarmac."

Pros: "Crew were exceptionally good, friendly and helpful. Great entertainment system."
Cons: "The food is terrible, overcooked watery beefless beef dishes. Better ti brng your own food."

Pros: "Boarding was easy and efficient"
Cons: "We paid an extra $100 for each ticket for premium seating, supposed to be a step above the basic coach ticket with more leg room (my partner and I are 6'+), but our seats were no different than anyone else's. In fact, the seating chart the agent provided for selection when on the call to add this was not for this plane, as it turned out. We will be requesting a refund!"

Pros: "Very good on time, comfortable."

Pros: "Liked legroom in the emergency row and the quality of the new entertainment system."

Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Movie selection was limited although I found one in the lot that I thoroughly enjoyed. As always with Air Canada, you only get the most basic snacks and everything else is extra."

Pros: "The flight was average. Small plane, short flight, no food or beverage service. Pretty average and nothing to complain about."

Pros: "Really nice comfortable seats, amazing windows larger then usually with new technology. Food was ok. It was nice that crew constantly was offering drinks"

Cons: "There’s not enough leg room & no food other than pretzels"

Pros: "In flight attendance was excellent and we were nearly overfed with plenty of drinks, snacks and meals. It was nice to see both young and elderly ladies as air hostess. This is a strong statement in non discrimination on Account of age in employment. To see a red Indian lady among them was very refreshing."
Cons: "Dimming of the windows was not user friendly and we had to put up with bright reflected lights from clouds. On ground both in Calgary and Vancouver the wheel chair attendance was not at the same level as in Frankfurt where it had been given with paramedic competence."

Pros: "Staff was nice and helpful."
Cons: "No leg room"

Cons: "The food. Skip the cup of noodles."

Pros: "Flight was great. Check in not so."
Cons: "On March 18, 2018 Joanne, Kevin, and Allison Sheridan were booked to go from SYD to YYJ and only Kevin took off. We went to the airport and my daughter Allison was too anxious to get on as she had to leave her father behind. After she calmed down we went to get on the flight and the lady at the check in, (Onwsha) said it was too late and we could leave the next day. She changed my tickets on the computer and said if we came on Monday, March 19th there wouldn't be a charge but if it was any other date it would be $150.00 per ticket/person. When I arrived to check in on March 19th I was charged the $300. I spoke to Sharon Smith who was with Air Canada Customer Service Coordinator and I explained I was told something different by the customer agent. I told her if I knew that and I was told by Onwsha I would have went on the flight on March 18th but would not have checked the bags and just taken carry on luggage as my husband was still at the airport and he could bring them when he came over. Sharon Smith said there was nothing she could do and we had to pay the $300.00. It really has left a bad taste for me with Air Canada especially how many seats were spare and I was told something different from Onwsha. Thank you for your time. If any other details are needed feel free to contact me."

Pros: "Everything was good, fine, but nothing stands out as exceptional."
Cons: "Personal space seemed a little smaller than on some other airlines."

Pros: "the flight crew offered us as many drinks as we'd like which was nice."
Cons: "the seats were quite uncomfortable even though it was a 5 hour flight. there was no food on flight other than for purchase, too expensive."

Pros: "Around $700 air fair for round trip flight to Asia is a good deal."
Cons: "The flights between Vancouver and Dallas are small and tight, very uncomfortable. Normal carry on csn not fit into overhead bins."

Pros: "While I've ranked the crew as poor, that isn't a reflection of the entire crew. The flight crew and check-in team were fine, the boarding I have as mediocre due to delay, but I don't put that on the staff."
Cons: "My issues are two part: 1 - I wasn't informed that I was required to retrieve my luggage from the carousel on this flight from George Town to Toronto. I thought perhaps I missed something, however, the three other couples that were in the same predicament I was weren't aware either. This caused a massive headache, the instructions were superbly poor on how to retrieve the luggage, and the process was completely a waste of time. We had to talk with three different people, the person that took us back to the carousel showed no urgency despite us all explaining that we were on a short layover, and might miss our next flight, and even though we had our passes to get through customs, we were made to wait in line to have our baggage inspected. A completely broken process that could've been avoided with a friendly reminder at check-in. 2 - Once I was able to retrieve my luggage I picked it up off the carousel only to find the handle on one piece of luggage had been ripped off, and the plastic lining on the other bag was destroyed. Admittedly I find this to be no surprise after seeing how mine and everyone else's luggage was handled so poorly upon being loaded into the cargo. I saw my luggage being tossed 3-5 feet into the cargo area - literally picked up, and with complete disregard flung like it was a trash bag being thrown into the dumpster. Since I didn't have time to discuss this with any staff due to my prior issue and being unable to find a representative once I landed back in Vancouver, I called the next day to discuss this over the phone, but the representative explained that I was only able to make a complaint in-person at the time of baggage retrieval. The person was absolutely useless and unwilling to help. This was by far the worst treatment I've had at any time in my life while flying any airline. The trip to George Town was with American Airlines, and even though it was longer, and a tad bit more expensive, the service I had with them was stellar by comparison to my experience with AirCanada. Going forward I will only be using AC when there are absolutely no other options."

Pros: "The flight was on time check in was simple and quick Staff on board friendly and professional Inflight movies fab Plenty of room on seats clean plane"
Cons: "Nothing all great"

Pros: "Great food and good space for economy"

Pros: "staff was great checkin at the airport was a breeze and love the 2 checked free luggage for international flights. food was mediocre but what do you expect, I'm just glad we got 2 meals and 2 snacks. great touch."
Cons: "only issue was the fact the online checkin was unavailable to us for some reason which basically left my girlfriend and I sitting in separate rows in between 2 people for 17 hours. entertainment was also pretty lacking with only a few movies available."

Pros: "Crew were good"
Cons: "Seats were too tight. Entertainment was mediocre"

Cons: "Flight was delayed My wife and I got separate seats Screen and audio on the entertainment system didn't work"

Cons: "Late flight the crew did.t care and many people missed connections. The customer service at the airport desk was understaffed slow and rude. They we're not helpful in trying to get new flights booked and I felt like it was asking a huge favor even though it was Thier delayed flight that made me miss my connection."

Cons: "I bought my ticket with Air Canadafrom Vancouver to Calgary then connected with Lufthansa from Calgary to London UK. Unknown to me I could not find the flight because it had been changed to an AC reference flight. With a very short time for the connection I did not know where to get my boarding pass as my flight with Lufthansa was nowhere referred to ! Not which gate to go . Why not put it in the ticket that Lufthansa and Air Canada work together and that both flights ref should show !! It would avoid a great deal of anxiety . Only offered 1 round if hot drinks over 9 hours ! Departure delayed by nearly 60 minutes"

Pros: "Organised zones for boarding"
Cons: "i am à French National ( France) living in UK. After a confusing conversation from the officer not understanding that I was not travelling to France ( assumption) I was asked to show evidence I had the right to enter UK !!!! I explained I lived there permanently ; I was then asked why French hate English so much!!! To which I explained only narrow minded people would believe so and that the style of her comment were not appropriate . I explained my children were half French half British and that her comment was offensive ."

Pros: "The hot dinner was good"
Cons: "The pudding was poor, it was just a wrapped cookie. The movie selection was terrible! Most of the films were very old!"

Pros: "great service from start to finish would use again"

Pros: "its was smooth"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "few movies"

Pros: "I was reading so much about how cramped and uncomfortable the seats on Air Canadas 787's, but I don't think their product is any worse than most other economy class products out there."
Cons: "Their "continental breakfast" was a dry piece of banana bread and yoghurt. No jam, butter cheese or other spreads to compliment with your bread. Most disappointing "continental breakfast" I have had on a plane!"

Cons: "Very cramped like sardine tin. Not enough flight info boards in airport and they were hard to read m"

Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "No TV monitors and food was bad"

Pros: "Constant supply of food"
Cons: "No entertainment on seats"

Pros: "Pretty standard flight...nice crew, free drink, left and arrived on time for the most part. Liked that I could check in early to arrange a seat."
Cons: "The seats could have been more comfortable. Had a couple knees in my back."

Cons: "Baggage hasn't arrived after 45 minutes"

Pros: "Overall a good experience. Had to pay for food but it was quite good so I didn't mind. Supposedly the crew were short staffed but I found them attentive and helpful and to be honest I believe the people who complained may have been a little precious."

Pros: "Flight was quick, service was great, clean lavatories."
Cons: "Would've appreciated more legroom, but the same can be said for just about any airline."

Pros: "I've always had adequate flights with AC. No one goes over and beyond, but everything is as you would expect. A smooth flight."

Pros: "Nithing"
Cons: "6 hour flight delay missed a whole day of vacation when we called customer service we were redirected to a adult sex hotline by your staff all we got was a 10 dollar voucher for our trouble never flying air Canada again"

Pros: "service is good"
Cons: "2 hour delay in takeoff caused our connecting flight to miss our bags. We barely made the flight."

Pros: "Meals were good and I do like the premium economy seats."
Cons: "One issue that the premium economy seats have is that they recline button is very stiff to push. Then when you have final pushed it in then push back on the seat it falls to the full recline position, potentially surprising the passenger behind. I thought this was isolated to this flight but have now encountered in 2 subsequent flights in AC premium economy."

Pros: "The flight attendant struggled were young very helpful and nice"
Cons: "No TV on back of seats. Seats very uncomfortable"
